Every seven minutes another American loses her eyesight and joins the ranks of the estimated
ten million legally blind in the United States.
Until this kind of tragedy strikes close to home, few people consider the unique challenges and triumphs specific to relearning their independence. Claire Anderson is one of these individuals. After spending sixty-four years enjoying an active lifestyle, strokes in her optical nerves caused her to lose the sight in both her eyes.
As a seasoned writer and personal witness to the challenges and triumphs of overcoming a loss of vision, Claire has written a heartwarming and educational non-fiction book about learning to live, love, and share with her first – and only – seeing eye-dog, DaVida.
Taken straight from her personal journals written during her time at seeing eye-dog school, this delightful book will take the reader along on the journey with two inexperienced individuals, dog and woman, coming together to form a team.
